Writers Oppose Demolition of Moscow Houses Associated with Sergei Yesenin

Russian writers have stood up against demolition of Privalovs’ Guest Houses, where Sergey Yesenin recited his first poems. 

The historical houses are located in the Sadovnicheskaya Street in Moscow.

As reported by the public coalition In Defense of Old Moscow, the public appeal to the RF President to prevent demolition of Privalov’s Houses has been signed by over 40 famous Russian poets and writers, including Oleg Chukhontsev, Lyudmila Ulitskaya, Yury Ryashentsev, Sergey Shargunov, Zakhar Prilepin, Dmitry Bykov, Olga Sedakova, Dina Rubina, Victor Erofeyev, and others.

The writers come out in defense of the federal value monument related to the history of Russian literature. One of these buildings designed by the outstanding Moscow art nouveau architect Ernst-Richard Nirnsee in the early 20th century housed the editorial office of the Milky Way journal, which introduced Russian readers to young Sergei Yesenin and other Silver Age authors.

According to the coalition, demolition threatens the monument in the coming few days. The decision was taken with the worst violation of the law. The writers demand preventing the destruction of the unique historical place associated with the history of Russian culture.
